Ultimate viewing pleasure comes from the image. Projectors are getting smaller, compact while delivering a crisp display. The PH450U from LG will transform any space into a cinema. It is battery powered for the nights you want to move into the backyard to host the neighbourhood’s outdoor movie night. Its versatility is the most attractive feature; it can project a large screen or a small TV sized projection. This little projector packs a big punch and is comparable to larger more expensive competitors.
